Paper Abstract

We present performance of PROGRESS Nd:glass laser facility which consists of a six beam PROGRESS-M phosphate Nd:glass laser, 30 TW PROGRESS-P picosecond YLF:Nd glass laser, which uses chirped pulse amplification (CPA) technique and target chamber. Laser is capable to focus simultaneously at 1,054 micrometer the energy of 1.5 kJ in 1.5 ns and power of 3.5 TW in 200 ps on the fusion target. We report performance of a single beam 0.5 kJ PROGRESS-1M laser. This laser with output rod amplifier 14 cm is the prolongation of one of the beam of the multi-beam laser. PROGRESS-P CPA laser uses YLF:Nd oscillator, single mode optical fiber, Nd:glass rod amplifiers with output diameter of 85 mm. At the output, the chirped pulse with energy about 45 J is compressed up to 1.4 ps in the single-pass compressor on two holographic gratings, which produces power of 22 TW.
